Grateful Dead Live at Fillmore East on 1970-07-10

--This set (minus NFA) has often circulated as the 6-24-70 early show, or the 6-25-70 late show. This is now strongly believed to be from the July Fillmore East run, and 7-10 is the most likely date. A recently circulating excerpt from Weinberg's reels supplies the NFA. This version matches no other from the year, and is clearly stated to be the encore from the Fillmore East. It is possible that it could be from 7-9.

Subject: This is not 7/10/70
The electric set opened with Morning Dew.
They also played Dark Star into St Stephen into NFA into Lovelight.
Mickey had some snare problems that stopped them at some point.
Would love to hear it again some day.

My first copy of this years ago was on casette labeled 6-25-70.
Then, later, Dead Base labeled it as the early show from 6-24-70.
I don't know if there were two sets on 6-25 or two successive nights, but I *hear* this set as kindred to the established and accepted Port Chester 6-24-70 'late' show.
The Attics are *very* similar-- and the playing at both sets is, well, outstanding.
And one more piece of circumstantial 'evidence': shows at Port Chester in 1970 (Nov.) were INTENSE.
Highlights: Awesome Cold Rain and Snow; Alligator->Other One is INCENDIARY. Very short... but I can visualize the top of the theater being blown off...
And, the Attics. One of my very favorite Dead lullabys, and this the best performance of it I have ever heard.
The Not Fade Away is also outstanding. One of their better jams during this period. I also suspect it is from another show.
WIsh boards were available...
Subject: St. Stephen Tease
Subject: Fun show
I have listened to a lot of it, and it gives you the feeling of being crowded into a hallway in the back of this venue. One can hear the crowd reacting gleefully and the intro to Cosmic Charlie is delightfully raunchy. For someone who was born shortly after this show, its interesting to get this taste of a famous Dead venue.
I will continue to listen to this show occasionally, but I will not save or burn it as the quality of the recording just doesn't warrant it. Its worth a listen.
